president from getting the secretary of state that he wants and with john kerry mentioned the senator from massachusetts as the alternative to susan rice, would he be any better. >> i'm surprised that the president is pushing so hard from here. quite apart from whether she was politicizing events she shouldn't have been, she has a reputation of not being a very good diplomate n that job you have to be able to persuade people to come on your side and apparently she tends to. >> rough edges. >> insult people and she's a little bit abrasive, but, john kerry is also very troubling. his track record over the years, not as a diplomate. he might be very good at going to dinners and so forth, but, you know, for example, in latin america, when he ran for president, he was backed by thomas boardhey a former in nicaragua and, another's involvement in the office in honduras were bringing a friend of chavez back to honduras and that's cost a lot of-- >> and the case for susan rice, she's better than john kerry.

would be a republican caucus to get john kerry -- gwen: well, if you're a member of the senate you're part of the club and that's probably what's going on. but i'm curious about the folks at the white house, mike, it seems to me the people at the white house are trying to decide if it's worth it. >> i don't often say this, because every time i think it i end up being wrong. but i think there's a visceral aspect of this. i think the president, when this came up in his first post-election press conference was genuinely upset. come after me, come after me, almost like a joe pesci moment there. gwen: right, right. and if it would have been anybody other than john mccain it wouldn't have been quite the same. >> which also may have pushed the presidential buttons as well. i think that there is a strong contingent among the upper echelon at the state department and at the white house that think that president should go forward with that nomination. gwen: should? >> should. i think there are others who say let's not pick this fight now. we have plenty to work on you the upcoming fiscal cliff

end up seeing someone perhaps like a john kerry? >> that's up to the president of the united states, of course. but i would say he has a wide selection of individuals to choose from. but susan rice would be on the very top of my list, that's for sure. >> what do you make of all of this opposition? do you think that some of it is legitimate? >> i think that it has to be something has to be personal or the fact that john mccain lost the presidency or something of that nature. >> really? >> when you think of it, think of what condoleezza rice, when she was the secretary of state and some of the things that she said and weapons of mass destruction, something that was very devastating to us as a country, took us into two wars. and i didn't hear john mccain or lindsey graham or anybody saying anything then. so to be talking about this when susan rice had absolutely nothing to do with the decisions in regard to what the security should have been or shouldn't have been in benghazi, to try to put the blame on her now, it seems incredible that they continue with this line of criticism. >> her

. he's a republican. also, john kerry, currently in the senate. michelle flournoy. hagel would be an interesting pick. if he picks hagel, a republican, that takes some of the heat off of susan rice to be nominated as secretary of state. she's had a tough time on capitol hill talking to republicans. if you get a package deal, a republican and a democrat, that you're nominating from the president. what are senators going to do, but take both of them? we're hearing, if the president wants susan rice, he's going to nominate susan rice, one way or the another. >> neither side seems to be moving on what they need to do to avoid a fiscal cliff and reach an agreement. is there posturing? >> reporter: well, this is washington. the whole fiscal cliff is forcing them to do something. the president has said that tax rates will go up for the wealthy. republicans won't bend on that yesterday, john boehner said, we are at a stalemate. this is posturing. this is washington. we're going to have ups and downs. >> ups and downs in the stock market, as well. david, thanks. have a great weekend. >> you,

this point, unless for some reason, john kerry sneaks in because he'd have a smoother confirmation, juliet. >> juliet: yeah, the problem is what happened with benghazi seems to be a replay of what happened when she was involved with watching over africa when she was at the state department. and the-- exactly being back in 1998. there was information that al-qaeda had cells in some of the major cities in africa and that they asked, asked for more security and didn't get it. sound familiar? and yesterday on sean hannity's show, the family of two of the victims killed in the 1998 bombings had some comments. >> what we do know as early as 1996 our intelligence community had live active sells, in nairobi, kenya, despite those facts nothing was done to increase securities in our embassies in nairobi or tanzania. and we hope that whoever serves as secretary of state will make security a top priority. >> clayton: look, she wasn't involved in that capacity on security at all, but others are saying, look, this is a part of a larger narrative of susan rice, if she was involved in the benghazi

does play out like some does suspect and john kerry ends up getting nominated to run the pentagon, that makes for a very interesting senate race in the state of massachusetts, once again. >> maybe, maybe not. what people keep forgetting in all of this is that the massachusetts legislature is run by democrats who could always just change the law back so that there's not a special election and it becomes an appointment, again. yes, some dominos falling in massachusetts if senator kerry gets that post, particularly if there is an election, which is the state of the law right now. scott brown expected to run for it and about as strong a republican as you can get in the state of massachusetts. >> molly ball, thank you so much. lynn sweet, one of my favorite ladies. lynn, i did not get to ask you about your jesse jackson, but i would encourage folks to read on what you wrote over gesjesse jackson jr. over the past week or so. some very insightful reporting. >>> 31 days out to the fiscal cliff. we will go live to see what the president is saying to house leaders and whether that will kee

senate republicans on the hill whereas john kerry the senator from massachusetts had a very good week and it looks like republicans would confirm him for just about anything that the president wanted to appoint him to. >> morris, your picks. >> we'll let him appoint him to secretary of defense. my worst week is benjamin netanyahu. this guy has a real problem on his hand. you know, the u.n. situation, west bank expansion, picking the wrong guy for president. netanyahu, you've got a problem and you have to figure it out quickly. the best week for me is what i'm calling obama 2.0. the president is out there and this is new obama and gauge taking his message to the american people and strong leadership and expect more of this, more of an activist president in the next four years. >> okay. susan, how about yours? >> i think ambassador susan rice had a horrible week. not only, it started out with the best intentions going up to meet with these senators, but especially after a meeting with senator collins from maine, it just really went downhill from there and now it seems like the obama adm

when you're motion is to do otherwise? >> senator mccain. >> john kerry has been very active in this issue. i think it will require a presidential push to convince a few. i think it's important that we move forward with that. just one additional thing. as i mentioned, and as we know, the world is so rapidly changing. the unpredictability of the world is the one thing but i think we would all agree on. look at the world, as i mentioned last night, the first time we convened here and look at it today. what will it be like four years from now darks we don't know. we have no real idea. anyone who predicted the world four years ago would like -- would be like this today, i would like to meet year. -- i would like to meet yuo. we need common principles of international behavior. we have to stick to those principles. all of us, at least during the cold war, we lived in a very predictable world. we did. we knew the divisions and capabilities. we do not know what's going to happen. i don't know what will happen in china. i tell believe that 1.3 billion people are going to be satisfied forever
